Sunday Night Beauty Crafts

Doing it yourself can be so liberating...
Here, from one of my favorite at-home beauty books, is a fabulous recipe for creating your very own, individualized roll-on lip gloss.

"French Kiss Roll-On Gloss
Super shine for sloppy kisses. Your pout will beg to be whisked off for a weekend on the Rive Gauche, where it can be smooched in the style that it deserves."

1/4 cup castor oil
A pinch of cosmetic-grade mica in a color of your choice (for clear, disregard this step)
A few drops essential or flavor oil (choose your favorite, classic pepperment, or wacky root beer, green apple or bubble gum)
Six, 1/3 ounce mini roll-on bottles CLICK to buy!

In a small bowl, stir together the castor oil, mica and flavor oil. Decant the mixture into the roll-on bottles, pop in the roller ball and cap. It's really that easy!

Give it a try! You never know, that perfect kiss may just need a little personalized work!
